Jeff asks Rupert whether the paranoia is getting to the point where relationships are being strained. Rupert takes a long time to think about how to give the most puffed-up answer possible. He says that paranoia has "at times started to rip our tribe apart." The problem with that is that they're pretty much playing an individual game now, so there's not much point in appealing to tribal unity, you know? But hey, that's a subtle point, and not exactly one I would expect Rupert to understand. Jenna laughs, pointing out that Rupert is the most paranoid person in the group. Jeff asks Rupert to explains what's been going on, and Rupert says that when he brought the fish home, it "freaked them out a little bit" that he just took one for himself. Jeff asks whether this means that if you build the fire, nobody else gets to stand next to it or whatever. Jenna -- rather than taking the wiser course of letting Jeff take this one so that it doesn't seem to be about her -- brings up the plantains again, saying that this was her point: if there's other food, does Rupert not get any of that, just because he didn't help prepare it? She's right, but shutting up would have been the better part of valor there, I think. Rupert proudly says that this is what freaked people out -- that he "stepped up and said, 'Mine.'" That's not really "stepping up" so much as it is "being a selfish prick," but whatever. Amber says that she didn't have a problem with Rupert's eating a fish before the challenge, and I don't think Jenna had a problem with his eating a fish, either. I don't know how this got to be about Jenna telling Rupert not to eat, but that was never her complaint.
Shii Ann jumps in here, saying that all of the arguing over food originates with Jenna. She bitches about the fact that Jenna "monitors" the food, even complaining about the fact that Jenna makes food, and that she "tells [them] when [they] can make it." Right. Because she stands over you with a pointy stick and stabs you in the head if you try to cook for yourself. This is kind of a ridiculous argument, considering that we heard Jenna in this very episode tell Shii Ann that if she wanted plantains, she was welcome to make some herself. It doesn't appear that Jenna controls what anyone else eats; she just does a lot of the cooking, and that appears to be what Shii Ann resents. Shii Ann tells Jenna to "stop monitoring what everyone is eating," and gets all snooty about how Jenna should let Rupert eat every single fish if he wants to, which I guess really does mean that if you build the fire, you don't have to let anybody else sit near it. I have a feeling that Shii Ann would be very cold and hungry if she had had to live by the philosophy she is now spewing. Rupert beams, because he is an idiot and, as usual, has no idea that this is a bunch of idiotic sucking-up. So he actually considers it a moral victory over Jenna. I despise Shii Ann with such passion I cannot tell you. She may very well be my least favorite person I have ever had to recap on this particular show, at least in these last two episodes. Jon was hateful, but he didn't have this particular blend of self-righteousness and the conviction that he needed to lecture everyone all the time about what was really going on at camp. Shii Ann's just horrible. She's so full of herself she's practically leaking out of her own ears. Shut up, shut up, shut UP.
